How do you propagate Pachyphytum?

Dip the leaf into rooting hormone and place the leaf (cut-side down) into slightly moist succulent mix potting soil (even better is very lightly moist sand). Soon, a new rosette will grow from the base of the leaf. As soon as enough roots are present to repot, remove the original leaf cutting and repot the rosette.

What causes succulents to crest?

Crested Succulent. You definitely have a succulent that is growing in what is called a “cristate” or crested form. this happens when the original plant sustains some damage to the normal, single growing point and causes it to make multiple growing points. These all push against each other and cause the wavy, fan shape.
